“This is my favorite Korean dish and I eat it weekly at restaurants here in South Korea. It uses simple, cheap ingredients to create a spicy and filling dinner. If you like, you can add a fried egg to the side for extra protein, and some shredded sea weed (gim). Sprinkle the top with a few sesame seeds. ”

Original recipe yields 2 servings

Directions

  1. Bring the rice and 2 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, ginger, and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the kim chee, cucumber, and carrot. Pour in the soy sauce and rice vinegar. Season with salt, pepper, and chile powder. If the mixture becomes to thick, add 1 tablespoon of water. Gently stir in the tuna and continue cooking until the fish is heated through. Serve with rice.

This recipe is awesome! It tastes just like Korea! We had it with fried dumplings and extra kim chee on the side. I didn't have Korean chile powder so I used plain, was not quite as spicy as Korean but the dish was excellent - my husband loved it!

Good! I did not have Kimchi on hand, so I took a risk and used sauerkraut seasoned with cayenne pepper and mexican chili powder. Tasted awesome! Not a signature-Korean flavor, but still very good. I also added a boiled egg and a dash of sesame oil to add another dimension of more korean-style flavor.

Being that "heat" is a personal taste, I was surprised that I didn't find this as hot as I expected. My husband, who usually adds hot sauce to EVERYTHING, thought it was great the way it was. My 7 yr old boys even ate it! As usual, I didn't have all of the specific ingredients on hand, so I used the basics of this recipe and used the veggies and meat we did have. We'll make this again.
